Has anyone ever got a new front sight from walther ?

In the manual it says if the gun is shooting low then you use a lower height front sight. They number them up to 4. Mine has a number 4 stamped on it. Has anyone called or emailed walther about extra front factory sights ?

Gee, no responses.....Well, I don't have a PPS, but I have purchased a sight pack for the PPQ/P99. Only way you get an answer to your question is to simply call Walther and ask.

Here is a link to the exploded view/parts list for the PPS M2. It only list 'one' front sight.

And, here's a link to the exploded view/parts list for the PPS M1. It list three sights, numbers 3, 4 and 5. I'm pretty sure the M1 and M2 use the same sight cut in the slide.

If it were me, I'd simply call Walther and not ask any questions. I'd simply order the sights listed in the M1 parts list.

Sight no. 3, part number 267 99 06
Sight no. 5, part number 267 99 49

Dawson Precision will make you a front, fiber optic sight, in any size you want, to fit your PPS. They made me one. I got mine to the same size as the one that came on the gun, which shoots right to POA, off a bench, at 25 yards.

Don't quote me but I believe the sights are interchangeable. Too bad mags are not.

Funny my P99 came with 4 sights included. Never thought about using them on my PPS but it shots to POA.

I emailed walther and they are sending me a lower front sight free of charge. Good service if I may say so.

Which number sight are they sending you? I may be tempted to request some too.

Mine too! I don't see why all Walthers don't come with the different front sights.

(Although I have never had to change the height of a PPQ front sight.)

They didn't tell me which one they are sending.
